Patients may be candidates for breast revision surgery if dissatisfied with results from previous breast augmentation. Concerns may arise due to implant size or position. Also, capsular contracture may develop over time, which results in varying degrees of scar tissue surrounding the implant. This may range from a somewhat tight implant to one visibly distorted and painful.
Revision surgery will be based on each patient’s specific concerns and appearance. Options may include capsulotomy (scar tissue release), capsulectomy (scar tissue removal), capsulorrhaphy (tightening or resuspending the capsule to alter implant position), or implant exchange for different size, type, or placement.
Implant revision surgery is performed as out-patient surgery. Patients are generally able to return to work within one week. It is necessary to refrain from strenuous activity or heavy lifting for one month post-operatively.
